OTA Educational Webinars

There’s a lot of buzz around Other Transaction Agreements (OTAs) these days. OTAs are legally binding agreements that, when used in a research consortium, invite creative partnerships and collaboration between industry, academia, and government. In 1958, newly-created NASA was the first agency granted authority to use OTAs to quickly attract the best and brightest in industry and academia to accomplish its mission of establishing a national space program. Since then, OTAs have been integral in developing cutting-edge research and innovative prototypes to meet a wide variety of government challenges. OTAs encourage participation among industry and academia, including those who don’t normally work with the federal government.
